WATCH predatory tropical fish jump out of water to attack hovering DRONE - 24分前  RT

An arowana fish was filmed making daring high jumps to bite a drone it thought was easy prey flying over the water. The fish typically feeds on unsuspecting birds and insects. A short video, circulating on social media, shows a small drone copter hovering over a waterway. An arowana then suddenly leaps out of the water trying to catch the aircraft.

US knows best? Washington threatens India with sanctions over citizenship bill for persecuted religious minorities - 2時間前  RT

The US has decided to give India its foreign take on the country’s hotly debated citizenship bill, threatening Indian government officials with sanctions for failing to list Muslims among ‘persecuted’ minorities.

Almost a year on from the Trump administration’s failed bid to oust Venezuela’s socialist leader, the media is scrambling to make sense of where it all went wrong – and finally admitting that Nicolas Maduro is going nowhere.

Western media was soon consumed with a sense of hopeful anticipation that Washington was on...more

WADA’s Russia doping ban ‘part of ‘New Cold War’ & robs clean athletes of glory’ - 13時間前  RT

Russia’s ban from global sports is a punishment rife with politics, analysts told RT. Worse still, political decisions can punish clean athletes, who will be denied the honor of competing for their country. The World Anti-Doping Agency handed down the ban on Monday, after Russia was alleged to have manipulated data in a Moscow anti-doping laboratory. WADA voted to suspend Russia from all major sporting events for four years in response, meaning the Russian flag will not fly at the next two Olympic Games as well as the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, should Russia qualify. ...more

The mayor of a rural French community has taken the rather extreme and outlandish decision to ban residents from “dying in their homes on Saturdays, Sundays and on public holidays” due to a lack of doctors in the area.

The problem came to a head early this December after no doctor could be found to record official medical details following the death of an elderly nursing ho...more
